Why You Should Not Join Celebrities Beef

We were ushered into the New Year with a fight or beef (Any one you chose to call it) between Olamide and Don Jazzy over Headies award won by Reekado Banks. Olamide felt Lil Kesh was rigged out.. It trended the whole Internet. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Baddo, WhatsApp and even offline. The whole Newspapers and news outlets carried it. The news has weight because of the nature of the two parties involved. Olamide was backed by the street while Don Jazzy was backed the elites. Fans of both joined fuss, throwing jibes at each other. For bloggers, its a money making venture. Traffic is what brings the revenue. Most persons joined the fight because they see them as idols. They failed to understand that celebrities are like politicians. They quarrel before you and settle out behind your back.

Some fans forget that some feud are scripted for the celebrities are to make more money. Also, some of the beef are used for publicity purposes. These guy know how to use our heads and get what they want. Olamide and Don Jazzy have settled it while a lot of persons still look around for paracetamol for a headache they didn’t have. So next you hear any Kcee quarrelling with DBanj or Timaya even Phyno, just save yourself the shame and mind the business you do.

Saving Nollywood

Truth be told, Nollywood is in deep trouble. Don’t conclude yet that you know its troubles because there are more that meet the eyes. I’m one person who believes in Nollywood and its revolutionization in no distance time. Yes, I see a Nigerian story that will take the world by storm. A story that will not only take Hollywood to drawing board but will bring out the true image of the giant of Africa. Do we ever imagine that we have films like ‘The Figurine’, ‘The Last Flight To Abuja’, ‘ The Mirror Boy’, and recently Chimamanda Adichie’s adaptation of ‘Half of A Yellow Sun’?

To save Nollywood from the thousands of present troubles, we all must stand up to action. Stop being an armed chair critic or social media caricature of our films, even Hollywood and Bollywood make bad films. The titles of Nollywood films will get you cracked up before watching the film. Take for instance ‘ASUU Strike’, ‘Chocolate Pinging Salon’, ‘Dorobucci Girls’, ‘Missing School Girls’ etc. Casting is another headache, why should Segun Arinze father a Ramsey Nouah? Why should Pete Edochie wear same beard whether he’s playing wealthy or wretched man? Why would we have a man playing the character of a ‘dibia’ and you see him having either ‘punk’ or ‘galas’ haircut? What happened to dreadlocks?

Scripting is another issue. Sometimes I begin to wonder if some Nollywood films are scripted or the producer or whosoever that’s in charge decides on whatever each of the characters say or do. Atleast, script in every film project gives both cast and crew a lead. Location makes Nollywood films look terrible if not how can a Clem Ohamaeze (a wretched farmer) live in a house nicely painted with iron sheetings?
Make ups and costumes don’t really go well with Nollywood. Why would we have Jim Iyke as an accident victim and we watched clearly him hitting his head on the dashboard, but in the hospital his legs and hands are squeezed up in bandages?. Tell me reasons we won’t use sacks as costumes on an epic film? Is it that our producers and directors didn’t read history before going into a film project? Did we have wrappers before or after the coming the whitemen?

Why would Nollywood hell bent on recycling stories? If Director Pee made huge success in a film titled ‘Detective Ibu’. It is another thing for producer CeeCee to create a different project not coming with recycled script of ‘Osuofia Investicates’. The new trend is making the likes Nkem Owoh and Funke, Chiwetalu Agu and Ngozi Ezeonu, John Okafor and Eniola Badmus go to school.
Nollywood we should stop this mentality of ritual and charms’ stories. The world might think that the likes of Dangote and Adenuga are ritualists.

Now, solving the problems of Nollywood like I said earlier it’s not all about talking but coming out to act. You might never have all the resources in the world, but you need to start somewhere. If we must wrestle Nollywood from captivity and mediocrity, let’s come together to tell a better Nigerian story. Hollywood and Bollywood were never built around those that didn’t believe in what tomorrow’s porridge yam of today’s sweat. Nollywood is ours, lets reclaim it.

How To Get Married in Nigeria

You’ve foundwhom to marry or you are still dating? Your fiancee look too good and angelic. Your conclusion, you guys are getting married sooner than later. Now, you don’t dabble into what you don’t know. You need a guide. And for you information, marriage in Nigeria is a typical project which you must read and understand very well. If you are lucky, your parents will help you with some lectures and if you are not, you just have to rely on me. Just listen with keen ears and mind because this is ‘marriage 101 ‘. Don’t see me as a marriage counsellor or adviser. See me as a guide because I don’t want my house to be a special court for settling ‘quarreling couples’ and ‘family cases'(Your pastor can do just that). Atleast, you wedded in the church not my house.

You’ve found her as I said earlier. To start with, what is her tribe? How much does your parents and siblings love her? Does any of friend claim he knows her too well? (If he does, I wonder what happens anytime you might be away from the house). I shouldn’t you tell not to ask of her past because as you are making to become the ‘Mr. Right’, you don’t want some ‘idiots’ helping you out on your duty(Unless, you are not a man). If she is not educated(not an educated illitrate- the one that speaks grammar to confuse you). She shouldn’t be ugly or your village witches will get angry for not coming for one of them. I won’t remind you to check her village distance from yours unless your kinsmen won’t join you in the journey. If she works in a bank or she is lawyer, bro, I pity you unless you will get tired fighting. Her family is wealthy and you once had no shoes or singlet. Her father brought you out of the refuse dump (Don’t try upsetting their daughter. The prisons were not built for animals). No need going to the hospital for medical check up, you guys built your relationship on trust. I hope your mother is not grandchild crazy? If not, you will make babies under one week. You must marry at age of 23, if you are only the son.

You have known her. Of course, you will start with introduction before you are making an attempt to pay the bride price. During the bride price period, you have to organise a little party. Show your inlaws that you are capable of taking care of their daughter. God will judge these fathers that sell their daughters in the name of giving them out for marriage. You can pay everything they demand and possibly, you are in charge of the ‘commodity’ you bought. Of course, I don’t need to tell you that your ‘bachelor’s nite or eve’ should not be exempted. Your friends must welcome you into marriage-hood. God will bless you even more if you organise it in a five star hotel not near ogogoro joint
(you must be classic).

Traditional marriage beckons and you are a no nonsense guy. You are too popular that you mingle with the likes of Dangote, Otedola, Mike Adenuga. In fact, Bill Gates will soon be on your friends’ list. So, your traditional marriage must be talk of the town. I shouldn’t tell you that marriage has become a business venture(wedding-prenuer). Invest a little and get a little. God will get angry with any person advising to hang your coat according to your reach. You can borrow money from friends, siblings or take a loan from the bank. Unless, you are organising a traditional marriage, where moi moi and bread will be shared. A traditional marriage to remember. A talk of the town. Facebook, Twitter and all these ‘see and post’ bloggers will carry the news.

I shouldn’t tell you how Africans are civilization crazy. White wedding will be your next target as the traditional wedding wasn’t the authentic one. If you are a typical play boy, definitely you have to invite security before the priest asks ‘is there any person here…..'(complete the statement). The wedding also should be one in town so that the brown envelopes will be fat. You don’t know a guest you did invite might give you a car as gift, so you don’t intend cooking jollof rice and wrap up eggs as gifts. Your honeymoon should be done in London on a borrowed visa. God will replenish your hustle on a worthy wedding as you regret your actions after reception.
